CIRI Joins with The Journal for Spring Technical Conference

The IICRC’s Journal of Cleaning, Restoration & Inspection will hold its first IICRC Technical Conference in the spring of 2016, with a focus on restoration and remediation.

The Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) will jointly sponsor the conference with the IICRC, adding its wealth of science and technical knowledge to that of the IICRC and The Journal. This will be CIRI’s third science and research symposium, following critically acclaimed conferences in 2008 and 2011.

The conference and symposium will be held at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, April 10-11, 2016. The conference and symposium will be at the same location as the IICRC Board of Directors and Certification Council meetings. Conference attendees are invited to sit in on the IICRC meetings to observe firsthand the inner workings of the industry’s certification and standards-writing organization.
